important ohio is. president obama holding a four-point lead in this new poll, slightly outside the margin of error and significantly right at the crucial 50% mark. so the question is, what is driving the numbers in ohio right now? chief national correspondent john king has some answers. >> well, anderson, that narrow ohio lead for the president is within the poll's sampling error but it is yet another poll showing the president with a small persistent lead in the state of ohio. let's take a closer look at why it is happening in this state that is so important in the pick for president. here's the main reason right here. governor romney gets the republicans. the president gets the democrats but at the moment, in our survey, the president has a narrow lead among ohio voters who define themselves as independents. that is the battleground in a big battleground state, if you win the independents you are likely to win. governor romney close but the president with an important edge among independent voters. there's also an age divide, if you look at likely voters in ohio. among voters under the
the storm. this afternoon, president obama visited the red cross, national headquarters and mitt romney -- let's go to obama first. listen to him. >> we certainly feel profoundly for all the families whose lives have been up-ended. and are going to be going through some very tough times over the next several days. and perhaps several weeks and months. the most important message i have for them is that america is with you. we are standing behind you. we are going to do everything we can. to help you get back on your feet. >> dana: mitt romney attended a storm release event in ohio. listen to him. >> we have heavy hearts as you know, with the suffering going on and major part of our country. a lot of people hurting this morning. they were hurting last night. the storm goes on. i have had a chance to speak with some of the governors and the effected areas and they have talked about a lot of people having hard times. i appreciate the fact that people here in dayton got up this morning, some went to the grocery store, i see and purchased things that knows families will need. and -- things th
. and then president obama and bill clinton will wrap up the day of campaigning in bristow, virginia. but first, this is this week's radio addresses. president obama talking about the countries response to hurricane sandy. then mitt romney talking about the upcoming election. >> this weekend, millions of our fellow americans are still picking up the pieces from one of the worst storms in our history. i toured new jersey on wednesday with governor christie, and witnessed some of the terrible devastation firsthand. it's heartbreaking. families have lost loved ones. entire communities have been wiped away. even some of the first responders who repeatedly put themselves in harm's way to bravely save the lives of others have suffered losses of their own. today, i ask everyone to keep them in your prayers. and as president, i promise them this -- your country will be there for you for as long as it takes to recover and rebuild. throughout the week, i've been in constant contact with governors and mayors in the affected areas, who are doing an excellent job in extraordinarily difficult circumstances.

reasons. the first, president obama comes to ohio and likes to take credit for getting our state back on track. but we know that's not true. it's the work that the governor and i have done with all of you to balance our budget and get our state back on track. we didn't raise taxes, we cut taxes. [applause] here is my second reason and this one is personal for me. my youngest son is 18-year-old and he voted for the first time this year in a presidential election. a couple of weeks ago before a friday night football game his friend were at our house and they were in his room and i decided i wonder when they're talking about, girls, the football game t next concert they're going to go to, maybe kid rock. but i went upstairs and i was listening outside the door and they didn't know i was there. they were talking about this election because they know their future is is riding on four more days. if i could talk to the women in the audience. and i see there are just a few women here tonight. you know the democrats have talked a lot lately about this war on women. let me tell you what i think
